Culture of Empathy Builder:  Dan Roberts


Dan Roberts & Edwin Rutsch: Dialogs on How to Build a Culture of Empathy with Clowns

Dan Roberts is Founder and Executive Director of the Red Nose Foundation in Indonesia which is transcending boundaries through play. Red Nose Foundation provides children with a place to learn and play together, no matter one’s race, religion or economic standing.

 Through the structured study of physical arts (circus), the children learn that a success is celebrated as a team, and a failure is to be challenged together.  Red Nose Foundation uses a three-step model to support the development of empathy in our students and to teach them skills to build and reach their dreams. The first stage is pure arts exploration. The program was one of winners of the Activating Empathy competition
